Today, wife and I have decided to plan a trip to West Coast, taking in San Fran, Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Vegas (at least). We're UK based and will be travelling with x2 teenagers.
I realise that there's a lot of different ways to do this and as much as anything depends on personal preferences and to be honest I've just started to go through this forum.
Thoughts are to fly to SF and depart (approx 2 weeks later from Vegas). I'm sure with more research an intinerary will begin to emerge.
My question however at this early stage is more of one of planning. I was going to check out flights tomorrow..(as I said this was only decided a few hours ago). Since I haven't really planned such a trip before I was looking for any advice on best places to look for hotels, car hire, etc. etc and any other trips.. I'm guessing that availability will allow me to book the rest of the trip over the coming months, once I've secured flights.
Hopefully the question doesn't appear too dumb. The package/pre arranged tour deal doesn't really appeal since you never seem to get enough time at the places of interest.
Hopefully .someone can get me going..the site looks great and very helpful so I will be getting a lot of use from it over the coming weeks.
many thanks and happy New Year.
